I recently installed the imap-2001.BETA.tar.Z package for IMAP support,
but since I am somewhat of a newbie I'm having some problems.
First, I AM able to connect to the IMAP server box from a remote computer
with an IMAP client (such as M$ Outlook). However, the connection
consistently gets closed within 60 seconds.
Second, the IMAP daemon uses the same inbox as the 'mail' program
(/var/spool/mail/$USER), which I don't want because the 'mail' program
moves the messages to a different file once read. I want mail received on
the system to go to a different inbox used by the IMAP daemon. Is that
possible? Or can i just disable the 'mail' command?
